Trained as a fine art printmaker, she completed her postgraduate studies at Glasgow School of Art. Her art work is inspired by the colours of nature and a vivid imagination. She also has a keen interest in nature and the environment which is reflected in her love of gardening and plants. Many of Rachel’s images are based on plants from her own garden.
Rachel lives with her husband, in a house situated well above sea level where they grow much of their own food and, when the sun shines, they generate their own electricity.
Rachel loves reading and in her spare time she also writes young adult fiction and illustrated books.
